"A barn find early model VW Beetle, the first years model with a rollback sunroof. The last time it was driven was back in the early 1970´s a prefect renovation project


The car last saw daylight fifty years ago. A 1951 model manufactured at the end of April 1952 and registered 19/5 1952. A very unusual radio is fitted, probably since the car was new. It seems to have been given a major overhaul around 1960. The wings are changed as well as tail lights and motor. Unknown if the gearbox has been replaced. Also the bumpers are from around 1960. It is very unusual to have such an early Volkswagen with original fitted sunroof that is for sale. If it's your dream car, take this opportunity to buy such a rare car now.

Facts about the model

VW bubblan började säljas i Sverige 1948. Importören Scania-Vabis valde noga ut vilka som skulle få köpa de första bilarna. På grund av importrestriktioner var det viktigt att rätt personer fick köpa ett exemplar. Allt för att kunna påverka både myndigheter och kunder för att försäljningen skulle ta fart. 1949 såldes det 349 exemplar. Året efter, 1950, lyckades man registrera hela 8 252 stycken.
De tidiga bilarna fram till och med 1952 hade delad bakruta vilket idag gör dem oerhört eftertraktade.

Auction information

General information about the condition of the vehicles .
  • At this auction, many vehicles have been included in car collections and have been stored (mothballed) for a long time. For this reason, they are described from a collector's perspective and may need technical reviews and maintenance service - oil, battery replacement, new tires, brake review, etc. - before they can be used. .
  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends. When you bid at the end of the auction period - and also if you have made an earlier bid - we therefore ask you to read the descriptions carefully, in case something has been changed due to new information.
